Input–Output Models of Organizational Structures
The interactions among groups of employees or staff in organizational units involve transactions that are analogous to those reflected in large-scale input–output models. The main difference is that, in an organization, the interactions of personnel with internal or external customers are often measured in terms of time (e.g., person-hours), in contrast to the monetary and physical units used in traditional input–output models. This chapter discusses organizational input–output models based on this concept. A case study is solved under different scenarios to illustrate the framework, and the corresponding LINGO model formulations are given.
